Question about 2001 Audi A6
Some say that you have to remove the clip-on cover at the back first. Believe to be noise guard.
Other users experience... first, don't mess with anything in front...this is a behind theheadlight assy job. Start by taking out the two screws holding the airintake. These are the two screws to the right of the two larger "star"bolts holding the headlight assy to the frame of the car. There arethree pieces to the air intake you have to remove to get at the back ofthe headlight. There are no clamps or anything holding these in so justgrab and pull these out of the way once the screws are removed...prettyeasy putting them back on once you are done.
Now, if you lookat the back of the headlight assy, you will see two thin metal clampsthat hold the back part of the headlight assy in place. Grab these,with a little muscle, and pull them out of the way. The back of theassy will still remain in place due only to it being in place there awhile...simply remove this back piece by grabbing on or near where thethin metal clamps once were - shake and pull it comes off easy.
This now exposes the burned out bulb. There is another wire clampsurrounding the stem of the bulb. "undo" this clamp...to hard to reallydescribe, but by now you can figure this part out - you have to get itall the way out of the way on both sides of the bulb for the bulb tocome out. Once out, disconnect the power cable from the bulb andreplace bulb. Note: don't touch the glass part of the bulb - I thinkbecause the oils from your skin may cause a more rapid decay. Anothernote: The bulb won't turn on when you reconnect the wire and turn thelights on...only when it's placed back into it's spot and the smallwire clamp back in place before it will turn on. (likely to be agrounding deal) Place the rear cover back, clamp it back down as it wasbefore and then replace the air intake pieces..put the two screws backinto place and you are done.

You may have pulled the 'adjustment screws' out. There are screws on the bottom too.
